Mint is known as a medicinal herb. It is used in a variety of products, not limited to skin care. If you look around, you can see that many shampoos, cleansers, toners, astringents, etc., have that mint factor in them, its because mint has a wide range of benefits. The first thing you would associate with mint is “refreshing.” Mint has anti-microbial, antiseptic, and anti-bacterial properties and hence is great to treat skin diseases, in particular acne and inflammatory condition. It calms irritated skin and imparts a cooling effect to the skin. Mint is rich in vitamin A and also has astringent properties. Since mint has salicylic acid content, it can treat, heal, and combat acne condition. Another important factor is that it is rich in anti-oxidants hence protects skin from free radical damage. Since it takes care of a lot of skin issues, its prudent that we make use of its properties by using it in face packs. Here are five face pack recipes made from mint:
1. Mint, Tulsi, and Neem Face Pack For Severe Acne:
This face pack will act as a potent treatment for severe acne. Take a few neem leaves, mint leaves, and tulsi leaves and with a mortar and pestle, grind them into a smooth paste. Add one tablespoon of curd to this mixture and apply this pack on the face for 30 minutes and rinse off. Use this pack regularly to get rid of acne.
2. Mint and Cucumber Face Pack:
A refreshing and brightening face pack, perfect for summers. Take a few mint leaves and a few pieces of cucumber (do not add too many pieces, otherwise the pack becomes too watery). Make a paste out of the two ingredients, add honey if you want, and apply on the face and keep for 20 minutes, rinse off. This face pack will tone and add a glow to your face.
3. Mint and Multani Mitti Face Pack:
Another face pack for oily skin, this face pack refreshes skin and controls excess oil secretion. Grind a few mint leaves and add in 1 tbsp of multani mitti. Mix well, and now you can add a tbsp of either honey or curd, mix well, and apply on face. You can avoid both honey or curd and just add rose water to make a paste out if it. Apply on the face and keep for 20 minutes before rinsing off.
This is again a cool and refreshing face pack cum scrub. The ingredients you need are 1 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp milk powder, 1/2 tbsp honey, 10-12 mint leaves, and a small cucumber.
